American Muscle Car Experience

Powerful Z06 Corvettes | Full Track Course | Exhilarating Racing Experience

At The Muscle Car Experience our concept is simple. It’s all in the seat time, and during that seat time it’s all under your right foot! You can spend more money to “drive” something exotic for less time. You can be coached down to protect that Italian leather… You can drink your tea with your pinky out, or talk about “racing” exotic cars over red wine… Or you can get behind the wheel of real American power, you can drive the fastest Muscle cars in the world, and drive them hard on a road course and you won’t have to apologize to anyone.

Our times are faster than any of our competitors because American Muscle cars perform and our instructors encourage you to perform too! American Muscle and highly trained instructors, it’s a combination that will leave you talking about your drive forever… over a beer, with your pinky around the can.

This was my second time doing the Muscle Car experience and it all went very smooth as it did last year too! The staff was friendly and supportive.

Absolutely the best anniversary present I've ever given! My husband's comment: "It was a total adrenaline rush." The facility was great, and the people were all very personable, entertaining and engaging. We purchased the video package and it was even better than we expected. My husband loved watching it because it gave him so much more information about his driving than he was able to pay attention to when he was behind the wheel. And to top it off, the two hours that I expected to be playing games on my phone to pass the time, was instead a ton of fun for me riding along in the pace car. I felt like I learned almost as much as a passenger as my husband did as a driver. Which is our only suggestion for improvement: if the drivers had the opportunity to ride in the pace car at the beginning of the experience, they would have known how a good line feels when you hit it, and it really could have helped once they got behind the wheel to know what they were trying to achieve. But overall, we loved the day and can't speak highly enough about it. I think we'll be back!

It was a great experience! Everyone at Thompsons was very friendly. I bought my husband the 6 lap American Muscle Experience for his birthday. He loved every minute of it! I got to ride with Steven in the pace car so I had a blast, too. Thanks for a great day!

2016 Corvette Z06

The 2016 Corvette Z06 really is a giant slayer. With a 6.2-liter V8 pushing out 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, it’s the most potent production Corvette ever released. Its’ raw power goes toe-to-toe against the new Lamborghini Huracán and will give Ferrari a run for their money. Our staff will get you to enjoy all of that performance. The new Vette also adds a wider frame, and a more aggressive stance, the Z06 is second only to its’ big brother the C7.R.
